Glitzy Knits

You can't be a vintage girl without a glitzy knit! Whether it's a classy 1950s beaded cardigan or a garish 80s jewelled mess that looks like you've thrown up a tin of quality street down yourself (that'd be me then) you must have one in your wardrobe for the festive season. 

At our fairs we have some awesome knitwear, throughout the year. But naturally, what with the party season being ahead of us, I'm spotting more and more and I've really wanted to share them with you.

From top left we have a gorgeous black jumper from Jeny & Amber with elegant pearly beading around the neckline. Next up is a classic 80s Christmas jumper from The Vintage Scene and they had more where that came from! Keeping things simple, a grey cardi with a floral beaded brooch and finishing on another loud festive number from Jeny & Amber. There wasn't  sequin out of place either, a quality find.

My two favourite jumpers from our massive vintage fair in Bristol this year are above. The adorable beaded jumper on the left is so pretty and would look fab teamed with denim or a flowing maxi skirt. To contrast, yet another sequinned AND batwing jumper! The colours remind me of christmas decorations and sweeties.

And drum roll please. The ultimate in glitzy knits. Full, heavy sequinned long sleeved cardigan from our Shoreditch Fair. £28. Absolute bargain.

But I'm well aware that these babies aren't for everyone and if the high street's less garish versions of the sequin jumper are more your thing, we've picked a couple out for you.

Hop along to our next fairs to bag yourself your very own Christmas jumper or festive sparkly knit.

See you there!
